The Charleston JV Football team picked up a 41-0 win over visiting Lincoln on Monday.

Lincoln was short on personnel and their quarterback did not make the trip to Charleston, limiting the Railers primarily to a running game.

“We came out and did a really good job and we got to play everyone, which is a plus,” said Charleston coach Clay Berner after the game.

Not only did the entire team get time on the field, four different Trojans scored touchdowns during the game with freshman Ben Coffey and sophomore Chet Shrader each scoring two TDs apiece.

During the first quarter, freshman Luke Bonnsetter and Coffey worked well together with a handoff followed by a reception helping put the Trojans on the board early. The defense held the Railers back towards the Trojans endzone and a wild spike gave the Trojans safety points.

To finish off the first quarter, Shrader scored his first touchdown of the night and freshman Wesley Paul scored on the PAT, putting the Trojans up 15-0 as they entered the second quarter.

Coffey scored his second touchdown of the night and Paul kicked in the PAT in the second giving the Trojans a 22-0 lead at the half.

The Trojans went ahead 29-0 in the third in another score before the Railers moved the chains down the field on several big plays to end the third quarter near their own endzone. But a pick-6 by Shrader early in the fourth quarter ended the drive.

Freshman Ezekial Hall picked off another pass for a touchdown with 2:47 left in the game, helping the Trojans finish off the night, 41-0.
